The Importance Of Moisture Sensors In Agoura Hills During Our Water Damage Restoration Process

If water ever enters your Agoura Hills sewing shop, the moisture can ruin many of your products and your building's structural components.

Commercial Water Damage Technicians In Agoura Hills Talk About Moisture Sensors

If water ever enters your Agoura Hills sewing shop, the moisture can ruin many of your products and your building's structural components. Once water enters your place of business, it is wise to call in a professional commercial water damage restoration company like SERVPRO. Whenever a pipe breaks or an appliance malfunctions, many gallons of water can get pumped into your store and increase the moisture levels of the materials that make up your building's structure and contents. It can be tricky to tell if certain items inside your shop got negatively affected by moisture or not. To find all of the wet areas inside your sewing store, we always use advanced technology to detect moisture in building materials and in the air that helps us figure out the severity of your commercial water damage situation.

Items can get ruined if they come into direct contact with water or when the relative humidity indoors rises. Whenever mitigating commercial water damage problems in Agoura Hills, our SERVPRO technicians' goal is to prevent secondary issues caused by moisture in the air from occurring. We know that elevated humidity levels can cause damage to many of your store's products. We also know that mold can form on organic substances that stay wet for more than 48 hours. To prevent elevated humidity levels from causing problems and mold from growing, we extract moisture then set up drying equipment to rapidly dry out your contents and structural components.

To figure out the best way to rapidly dry out your structure, we start by test the moisture content in your contents and building materials. We figure out which sections of your carpet are wet by using a moisture sensor that has a handle and two metal probes and lights up and makes a noise when moisture is found. To test moisture content in wood and drywall, we use a moisture sensor that has a digital display and a metal probe. We hammer the probe into the wood or drywall, and we get either a percentage or parts per million moisture content reading.

We take readings in both affected and unaffected areas to determine our drying goals. If your sewing shop ever suffers damage from a water leak, call SERVPRO of Agoura / Calabasas / Hidden Hills at (818) 991-6292 any day of the week.
